 Latest Eagles Player Notes
Jan 22 2018 - Nick Foles
  QB Nick Foles, who had completed just 2-of-13 throws of 20 yards or more since replacing Carson Wentz, was 4-for-5 Sunday on throws of 20-plus yards.


Jan 22 2018 - LeGarrette Blount
  RB LeGarrette Blount, who had an NFL-best 18 rushing touchdowns last season with the Patriots, had an 11-yard TD run Sunday against the Vikings. It was just his third of the year.


Jan 22 2018 - Destiny Vaeao
  DT Destiny Vaeao, who was a healthy scratch against Atlanta in the divisional round when the Eagles opted to go with just three tackles, was active Sunday. He played 11 defensive snaps against the Vikings.


Jan 22 2018 - Najee Goode
  LB Najee Goode, who replaced Dannell Ellerbe as the third linebacker in the team's base package, gave up an early 25-yard touchdown pass to Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph.


Jan 22 2018 - Dannell Ellerbe
  LB Dannell Ellerbe was inactive Sunday. Ellerbe, who is the third linebacker in the team's base package, has been nursing a hamstring injury.


Jan 22 2018 - Dannell Ellerbe
  LB Dannell Ellerbe was the only deactivated player in a mild surprise.


Jan 22 2018 - LeGarrette Blount
  RB LeGarrette Blount had an 11-yard touchdown run up the middle Sunday with 13:37 remaining in the second quarter.


Jan 22 2018 - Alshon Jeffery
  WR Alshon Jeffery caught two touchdown passes in the NFC title game. His first was a 53-yard touchdown pass from Nick Foles to cap a seven-play, 76-yard drive. Jeffery broke free down the sideline and Foles scrambled enough to launch the deep pass. He also caught a 5-yard score for a 38-7 lead early in the fourth quarter.


Jan 22 2018 - Nick Foles
  QB Nick Foles was 26 of 33 for 352 yards with three touchdowns, no interceptions and a passer rating of 141.4. Two of his three touchdown passes went to Alshon Jeffery and the third was a connection with Torrey Smith for 41 yards, "Nick was so great and guess what -- none of it shocks us at all," tight end Brent Celek said. "Nick has been working like crazy to prepare. We all see it. We had all the confidence and trust in him to help get it done. He was terrific."


Jan 18 2018 - Jake Elliott
  K Jake Elliott has made 27 of his last 30 field-goal attempts. But he's missed four extra points, including one last week against the Falcons.


Jan 18 2018 - Corey Clement
  RB Corey Clement has pretty much become the team's third-down back. Clement only had one carry against Atlanta, but had five catches.


Jan 18 2018 - Halapoulivaati Vaitai
  LT Halapoulivaati Vaitai wasn't on the injury report and was a full practice participant Wednesday. But he has been dealing with a knee issue for the last few weeks. It hasn't caused him to miss any snaps, however.


Jan 18 2018 - Dannell Ellerbe
  LB Dannell Ellerbe did not practice Wednesday. He is nursing a knee injury. Ellerbe played 23 snaps last week against the Falcons. He should be able to play Sunday.


Jan 18 2018 - Sidney Jones
  CB Sidney Jones, who was inactive for the Atlanta game with a hamstring injury, was a full practice participant Wednesday. That doesn't necessarily mean the rookie will be activated this week against Minnesota.


Jan 17 2018 - Sidney Jones
  CB Sidney Jones participated fully in Wednesday's practice despite a hamstring problem. He did not play in last weekend's divisional playoff game against the Atlanta Falcons. Jones played in only one game this season, and that was in the meaningless regular-season finale against Dallas.


Jan 17 2018 - Dannell Ellerbe
  LB Dannell Ellerbe did not practice Wednesday due to a hamstring injury. Ellerbe was questionable heading into last weekend's divisional playoff matchup against the Atlanta Falcon but played in that game. Ellerbe played in three regular-season games for the Eagles this season, including two starts, and he was a starter in the playoff game against the Falcons.


Jan 16 2018 - Jay Ajayi
  RB Jay Ajayi was held to 54 yards on 15 carries Saturday. He rushed for 49 yards on seven carries in the first quarter, but didn't have a carry longer than two yards in the final three quarters.


Jan 16 2018 - Chris Long
  DE Chris Long, who was the team's second-best pass rusher the last half of the season, played just 20 snaps against Atlanta. That was his fewest of the season.


Jan 16 2018 - Destiny Vaeao
  DT Destiny Vaeao was a healthy scratch for the Atlanta game. Defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz decided to go with just three tackles for the first time this season. Vaeao was the odd man out.


Jan 16 2018 - Corey Clement
  RB Corey Clement had just one carry against the Falcons, but caught a team-high five passes. Clement played 16 snaps in the game. LeGarrette Blount played 20 and Jay Ajayi played 29.


Jan 16 2018 - Sidney Jones
  CB Sidney Jones was inactive for Saturday's game against Atlanta. He was limited with a hamstring injury during practice last week, but the rookie also probably would have been used only on special teams.


Jan 13 2018 - Jake Elliott
  K Jake Elliott made three field goals in Saturday's 15-10 victory over Atlanta. Elliott's third field goal -- a 21-yarder -- put the Eagles up 15-10 with 6:02 left. "To be here with these guys with where I was is an awesome feeling," Elliott said. "The Eagles brought me in and I'm going to keep working and show I belong. It's a special, special feeling to be moving on into the NFC championship game round."


Jan 13 2018 - LeGarrette Blount
  RB LeGarrette Blount scored on a 1-yard run in Saturday's 15-10 victory over Atlanta.


Jan 13 2018 - Nick Foles
  QB Nick Foles completed 23-of-30 passes for 246 yards in Saturday's 15-10 victory over Atlanta. "Nick was great and we have all the faith in the world in him," Eagles C Jason Kelce said. "We prepared and felt ready. Nick did a great job moving us down the field and setting us up. We believe in him and he believes in us and that's our approach. It won't change."


Jan 13 2018 - Sidney Jones
  CB Sidney Jones was inactive Saturday. He made his debut in the regular-season finale, a 6-0 loss to the Dallas Cowboys after missing the majority of the season with an Achilles injury.


Jan 13 2018 - Wendell Smallwood
  RB Wendell Smallwood was inactive Saturday.


Jan 13 2018 - Sidney Jones
  Philadelphia Eagles rookie CB Sidney Jones, who was listed as questionable, was among the team's inactives. Jones, a 2017 second-round pick, was activated in Week 17 after recovering from a torn Achilles tendon sustained in a workout before the draft. He played in the final regular-season game against the Dallas Cowboys and recorded two tackles.


Jan 13 2018 - Dannell Ellerbe
  Philadelphia Eagles LB Dannell Ellerbe was active for Saturday's playoff game against the Atlanta Falcons. Ellerbe, who signed with the Eagles in November, was expected to play after he was a full participant in Thursday's practice. He made eight tackles while starting the final two games.


Jan 11 2018 - Sidney Jones
  CB Sidney Jones was listed as questionable for Saturday's playoff game against the Atlanta Falcons. Jones, a 2017 second-round pick, was activated in Week 17 after recovering from a torn Achilles sustained in a workout before the draft. He played in the final regular-season game against the Dallas Cowboys and recorded two tackles.


Jan 11 2018 - Dannell Ellerbe
  LB Dannell Ellerbe, who started the final two games of the regular season, was listed as questionable for Saturday's playoff game against the Atlanta Falcons. Ellerbe, who signed with the Eagles in November, did not practice on Tuesday, but was a full participant on Thursday, suggesting there is a strong possibility he will be able to play against the Falcons. He made eight tackles while starting the final two games.


Jan 10 2018 - Lane Johnson
  RT Lane Johnson gave up just three sacks this season and earned his first Pro-Bowl invitation and was selected first-team All-Pro by the Associated Press. On Saturday, he will go up against Falcons edge-rusher Vic Beasley, who led the NFL in sacks in 2016. "I respect him," Johnson said. "I don't fear any player anymore. But he's a good player. Quick twitch. Similar to (the Raiders' Khalil) Mack. Maybe not quite as explosive, but he's one of the more quick-twitchy guys in the league."


Jan 10 2018 - Alshon Jeffery
  WR Alshon Jeffery has been a big part of the Eagles' offensive success this season. Had a team-high nine touchdown catches, including seven in the red zone. Finished second to tight end Zach Ertz in receiving first downs (44) and second to slot receiver Nelson Agholor in third-down catches (19). Which is why alarm bells went off when he was targeted just twice by quarterback Nick Foles and didn't have a catch in the Eagles' Week 16 game against the Oakland Raiders. It was the first time since his rookie year that he didn't have at least one catch in a game. The Eagles need Jeffery to be an integral part of their passing game Saturday against the Falcons. "We're going to take what they give us," Jeffery said. "I came here to win the Super Bowl. Whatever it takes. If it takes me catching one pass, I'll catch one pass."


Jan 10 2018 - Dannell Ellerbe
  LB Dannell Ellerbe was a limited practice participant Wednesday. He is nursing a hamstring injury. Ellerbe is the team's middle linebacker in their base package.


Jan 10 2018 - Sidney Jones
  CB Sidney Jones was limited Wednesday with a hamstring injury. It's not certain whether he'll be activated for Saturday's game. Not so much because of the hamstring injury, but because he's only been activated for one game since recovering from a ruptured Achilles.


Jan 10 2018 - Jay Ajayi
  RB Jay Ajayi practiced fully Wednesday and said he is ready to go for Saturday's game. He said his arthritic knees won't be a problem.


Jan 10 2018 - Brandon Graham
  DE Brandon Graham's injured ankle appears to have healed. He practiced fully Wednesday.


Jan 10 2018 - Halapoulivaati Vaitai
  OT Halapoulivaati Vaitai was a full practice participant Wednesday. Vaitai had been dealing with a minor knee issue. He will start at left tackle Saturday.


Jan 9 2018 - Nick Foles
  QB Nick Foles will have no limitations on him in the Philadelphia Eagles' upcoming NFC divisional round playoff game. In fact, Pederson shared his message to Foles with reporters on Tuesday as the top-seeded Eagles prepare to welcome the sixth-seeded Atlanta Falcons to Lincoln Financial Field on Saturday (4:35 p.m. ET). "My message to Nick is, 'Listen, you have a great opportunity. Just go be Nick. Go play. Let's go execute the offense,'" Pederson said.


Jan 8 2018 - Zach Ertz
  TE Zach Ertz has eight touchdown catches. All eight have been in the red zone. The Eagles finished first in red-zone touchdown percentage this season.


Jan 8 2018 - Jay Ajayi
  RB Jay Ajayi didn't play in the Eagles' final regular-season game. The 24-year-old Ajayi has arthritic knees and the Eagles have been trying to keep him fresh for the playoffs. They held him out of practice last week.


Jan 8 2018 - Stefen Wisniewski
  LG Stefen Wisniewski said his ankle is pretty much completely healed. He missed two games with a high-ankle sprain, but played most of the Eagles' final regular-season game against Dallas. He will start Saturday against Atlanta


Jan 8 2018 - Sidney Jones
  CB Sidney Jones was activated for the first time in the Eagles' final regular-season game. Whether the rookie will be activated for Saturday's playoff game against Atlanta remains to be seen.


Jan 8 2018 - Nick Foles
  QB Nick Foles has completed just 2-of-11 passes that traveled 20 or more yards in the air. Carson Wentz was 22-for-65 on 20-plus-yard throws.


Jan 8 2018 - Jason Kelce
  C Jason Kelce was named to the All-Pro team even though he didn't get selected to the Pro Bowl.


Jan 3 2018 - Stefen Wisniewski
  LG Stefen Wisniewski said his ankle is nearly 100 percent. Wisniewski, who missed two games after spraining his ankle, played most of the game against Dallas last week and practiced Wednesday.


Jan 3 2018 - Brandon Graham
  DE Brandon Graham didn't practice Wednesday. He is recovering from an ankle injury suffered two weeks ago. He didn't play in the final regular-season game against Dallas.


Jan 3 2018 - Jason Peters
  LT Jason Peters, who is on injured reserve with a torn ACL, will turn 36 in January, but wants to return next season. He has a $10-plus million salary cap number in 2018.


Jan 3 2018 - Sidney Jones
  CB Sidney Jones saw his first NFL action last week, playing 29 snaps against Dallas. Head coach Doug Pederson said it hasn't been decided whether he'll be activated for next week's playoff game.


Jan 3 2018 - Jay Ajayi
  RB Jay Ajayi didn't practice Wednesday. The Eagles want him to rest his arthritic knees as much as possible before next week's game. Ajayi, who was acquired by the Eagles right before the league trade deadline in late October, averaged 7.0 yards per carry in his first five games after the trade, but only 3.9 in his last two.


Jan 1 2018 - Halapoulivaati Vaitai
  LT Halapoulivaati Vaitai played the entire game. He was the only offensive starter who did. He struggled at times, giving up a sack and getting called for a holding.
